Denise Murphy has widely traveled the United States with her husband as owner operators of a semi tractor trailer. Traveling throughout the US in a big rig is an eye-opening experience into the life of a trucker and the business world they operate in. Traveling the roads that dissect our great nation take skill, determination and a love of being on the road. Every state has it's own natural wonders, fauna, flora and when you stop and talk to people along the way you collect wonderful stories to relate or build upon.
Denise Murphy has also done some traveling abroad. Her most recent trip was to Shanghai, China in 2012 for her son's wedding. Even though she spoke not one word of Mandarin she did not let that stop her from exploring the wonders around her while in Shanghai and went shopping and exploring the neighborhood.
Denise Murphy feels life is short and that to enjoy the world around you, you need to dive right in and explore it. There is always something new to discover and one way to do that is through travel or seeing your own area through a newcomer's eyes. It makes everything fresh and gives you a new perspective of the everyday.
